Nottingham Conferences has signed up to the 2012 UK Event Industry Fair Pricing and Practice Charter.

The organisation, which represents the University of Nottingham's entire conference and events portfolio, is the first UK academic venue to sign the charter, which has been created to encourage fair, reasonable pricing during the 2012 Olympic Games period.

Charter members will be promoted to organisers seeking venues and suppliers via Visit Britain's network of overseas offices.

Nottingham Conferences marketing manager Kirstie Danzey said it was important for destinations outside of London to become a part of the Olympic Games.

"When the Games are taking place, there will be an influx of people looking for destinations to hold their conferences and events away from the hustle and bustle of London," she said. "This provides the perfect opportunity to showcase Nottingham and the East Midlands as an attractive destination and gain our share of the £1.5bn the Games are expected to bring to the business tourism sector."
